In 2010, my daughter, Molly and I went to Ghana. We fell in love with Mr. Sam, Sarah and all the kids at the Achiase Children's Home.
One day while we were cooking dinner by the fire, I asked Sara, “What is your dream? If you had a magic wand and could create your dream, what would it be?”
She jumped up and took my hand and said “Mama J, come with me.”
We walked on the narrow paths through the jungle and eventually came to an opening in a neighboring village. She said “that is my dream”.
When I looked up, I saw a beautiful school. We held hands as we stood together realizing what this conversation could mean.
After I returned home, I spent a lot of time thinking and praying about it. Finally, I realized, “We can do this! We can build a school.”
We have been raising funds and with the help of family and friends, we have raised the money and I will be heading back to Ghana with several others to make it happen.
Feel free to join us on this adventure as we go along.
